Concrete Muse is a site-specific exhibition featuring artists, who regard the things, people, behaviors and other “stuff” of the street as their muse. As opposed to street artists, who adopt outdoor settings as their canvas, these artists bring the outdoors inside to their studios and exhibition spaces.

Each artist in the exhibition transforms the detritus or overlooked objects of our daily, urban backdrop into an unfamiliar, and tantalizing new object or situation. The rugged, post-industrial terrain of DUMBO, Brooklyn provides the ideal context for Concrete Muse and its celebration of makers and the untapped magic of our city’s most gritty nooks and crannies.
